Updated: Jul 24

A Keynote Speaker is Humorless.


There is only one reason a professional speaker doesn't use humor masterfully in their talks. They haven't figured out how.

"When you laugh with someone, you both feel you’re on the same side. It’s a fantastic tool for building a connection. Indeed, for many great speakers humor has become

a Superweapon."

Chris Anderson, TED, CEO

Did you say the person in charge of the most coveted speaking platform on Earth believes "for building a connection" that

"Humor is a Super-Weapon."

And the CEO of TED is not alone.

Most top speakers are equally effusive about humor.

"Nothing positions people for persuasion

as well as a sense of humor."

Roger Dawson

"Nothing builds rapport faster than humor."

Jeffrey Gitomer

"Never forget that humor’s ability to poison a presentation is exceeded only by its capacity to lift it to another level."

Dave Zielinski

And something else is improved by using humor well.
